On May 15th 2012, ADay.org asked people around the world to pick up their cameras and take a photograph.

What returned was an extraordinary collection of images - from the simple image of a mother feeding her baby in Pennsylvania, to the lonely image of an Inuit Eskimo fishing in Greenland.

The images will be published online and in a book (well, 1,000 of them) - and also locked in a copper mine in Sweden, giving future historians a glimpse of just one day on our planet.(Daily Mail)

7:39am in Carrollwood, Florida: 'With lives already full of demands on their time, my children make the most of their morning commute to a Jewish private school in Tampa, Florida. My 12-year-old son, Ethan, is quizzing my eight-year-old daughter, Miriam, on this week's spelling list. In between words, he debugs the video game he's writing on his Mac' Photo: Jeffrey Hinds

Buella was right there, wanting my breakfast.

12:58: When the Costa Concordia ran aground on 13 January 2012, the tiny island of Giglio suddenly found itself at the centre of a crisis. The islanders rose to the challenge, helping to rescue people at sea, then taking drenched and terrified survivors into their homes. Perhaps their kindness counterbalanced the infamy of the ship's captain, Francesco Schettino, who faces trial on charges of multiple manslaughter, causing a shipwreck, and abandoning ship. Of the 4,252 passengers on the cruise ship, 32 died. Somewhat uncomfortably, Giglio now finds itself a focus for disaster tourism. Photo: Jack Mikrut
